ETUC Youth Training Week
(11 February 2022) Last week, representatives of the EPSU Youth Network took part in the ETUC Youth Training Week in Sesimbra, Portugal, organised in cooperation with ETUI.
The trainings focussed on EU advocacy and lobbying strategies, specifically to help participants develop and implement the ETUC campaign to ban unpaid internships. The trainings were highly informative, with detailed sessions on the EU institutions, EU policies and the European semester, as well as on methodology of EU advocacy. Participants were equipped with tactics and tools to lobby decision makers at both national and EU level.
At the end of the week, participants used their new skills to come up with part of the campaign against unpaid internships. Every participant recorded a short video which will soon be shared on social media as part of the campaign.
EPSU will support the ETUC youth campaign. Further trainings will be organised later this year by EPSU for the whole EPSU Youth Network.
